He’ll be missed by many…

Retired Brigadier General Ed Munger, a longtime ranch guest and defender of the Sierra National Forest and Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park, passed away on Monday. Only 68 years old, he lost his battle to very aggressive liver cancer. We knew him mostly as the Head Soar, leader of an organization called the Irascible Order of Soararsis, a charitable group founded in the 1940s to encourage the preservation of and knowledge about local public lands in the Sierra. He gave so willingly of his time and influence to many good causes, and was one of the most generous, friendly and encouraging people I’ve ever known. Top that off with a terrific sense of humor. Services will be held at noon Friday February 15 at the First Presbyterian Church on M Street in Fresno. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to Children’s Hospital of Central California, Fairy Godfather Fund.
